Barb, that sounds just like my Troll. No magic, only great to start out with. Ithilgore is my best fighter. I put a lot of points into Dragon Ability. He's even better than Duroth. I have to give Duroth's more Dragon Ability. So, I guess I'll just stick with the two of them.
Finished the game. Was nice playing an oldie again. Barb, you were right, my troll wore a couple rings to help disarm, and chests weren't a problem.
